Dragon Quest VIII low fps

This game works great (constant 30 fps) in villages, buildings … etc, but when I go outside to the outside world my fps drops to 10 or less at times and it is a bit frustrating
Is it just me or is it because of the emulation of this game? any solutions?

Do the fps drops only occur when monsters pop in? You can try underclock Citra a bit in the System tab and see if that helps. Be aware that you can occasionally freeze or crash as it makes emulation unstable.
